Health Care Costs

Can I get help with health care costs?

Depending on personal circumstances, some people may be eligible for help:

  • If you are on a low income, you can apply through the Low Income Scheme
  • Costs of travel to health care appointments, eye care, wigs and fabric supports
  • Dental costs
  • NHS prescriptions
  • Exemption certificates giving you access to free prescriptions and treatment

Information on the above can be found at:


If you require regular medication for a health condition, you may also be able to save money with a Prescription Prepayment Certificate (PPC), which lets you get as many prescriptions as you need for a set price.

Information on PPCs can be found at:
